Subtle Bias

This isn't the worst thing in the world, but I think it's part of the insidious bias the mainstream news projects on a near-daily basis.  Check out the explanation of this story on CBS.com about Walmart coming into DC:.

There's nothing factually incorrect in it.  The bias is not putting "living wage" in quotes or capitalizing it as a thing, as opposed to something else.  Some people may read that as Walmart not wanting people to live, etc.
